Tenth Winner for Nicconi
Our explosive sprinter Nicconi posted his tenth winner at Geelong on Friday when the talented Bulls ‘n Bears broke through to score his first win.
Trained by David Hayes, as was his sire Nicconi, Bulls ‘n’ Bears was sent out favourite and beat older rivals to win the 1000 metre maiden by a nose.
Fourth on debut in June and then second in two subsequent runs, Bulls ‘n’ Bears was really knocking on the door and deserving of his first win.
Bred and retained to race by Peter Devitt and the family of the late Les Gordon, who also bred and raced Nicconi, Bulls ‘n Bears is the first foal of Quietzer, a metropolitan winning More Than Ready (USA) daughter of Group I placed mare Calm Smytzer.
Quietzer has been a regular partner for Nicconi and has two more fillies to follow and is due to foal to the dual Group I winning sprinter this spring.
